RIP George Floyd - We Can’t Fight Hate With More Hate

Podcast - The Daily Edge

This week, as you’ve all seen on the news, George Floyd was killed by a police officer, as the officer slowly choked him to death by kneeling on his throat. This news is so saddening, because in addition to the tragedy of a man losing his life, it shows how far we still have to go as a country to defeat hate and become a nation based on the principles of equality enshrined in our Constitution.

With a heavy heart, Vivian and I are going to use this opportunity to turn pain into fuel and talk about the difficulty we are both having processing this event. We can’t solve the big political problems, and we’re not going to tell you how you should vote. But we can tell you how to deal with hate in your own life, and how you can choose to make pain better or worse.

So please join us on an episode of God, Money & Purpose that was difficult to record, but a necessary early step in healing the pain we are all going through right now.

Raul Villacis: Finding Certainty in the Middle of Chaos

The last year has been a crazy ride.
On Thanksgiving, my father, the man who taught me to be a man, passed away of a heart attack.
I was in the emergency room watching him fight for his life, and he fought harder than I ever thought possible. But then he gave me the most important lesson he’s taught me: When to stop fighting and let God take control.

And then in March, I put on The Next Level Leadership Summit on the same day that New York began the lockdown. There was a feeling in the air of uncertainty. Then, I got sick with COVID. Then my wife got sick. As I fought for my life, I realized that the world needs certainty. We, as humans, can tolerate pain, but we can’t deal with uncertainty. Certainty is the new currency. For the last six months, I’ve been helping my clients lead with certainty and power when most people are afraid to make a move.
